Microsoft start publishing Win32 applications via Windows Store

Microsoft has published few classic Windows desktop Win32 programs on Windows Store with the help of Project Centennial. Currently, Win32 apps published on Windows Store are Wordpad, Fax and Scan, Paint and XPS viewer. One of the most popular Windows Notepad is not in the Windows Store yet. Also, all of these apps are just for Windows 10 on the PC, as they don’t yet support Windows 10 Mobile due to their 32-bit architecture.

Microsoft recently released a preview version of its Desktop App Converter tool. Desktop App Converter tool allows desktop Windows installers to be turned into one that be deployed on Windows 10.

Microsoft may make these apps available through the forthcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update due later this summer. Insiders may get early access to them before it goes live to the public.
